MACEDONIA BUYS DOUBLE DECKER BUSSES FROM CHINA
Macedonia will purchase 202 double decker buses from China's largest bus maker Zhengzhou Yutong Group for 35 million euros ($A50.86 million) in a first such cooperation between the two countries, officials said on Wednesday.
Macedonia's Transport Minister Mile Janakievski told reporters that 68 buses would be delivered by the end of 2011, while the remaining vehicles were expected by 2013.
"Buses will have a unique, retro design only for Skopje," Janakievski said.
This is the first such venture between the two countries.
Zhengzhou Yutong Group - which won the government's bid with the best offer - is one of the biggest bus makers in Asia, producing 150 vehicles per day.
